we went to the Indelible Grace concert last night at Covenant. we couldnt find a sitter (at least not a free one), so we ended up taking Caleb too. we werent quite sure how he’d do, as it started after his bed time, but thankfully he did really well and seemed to enjoy himself. a lovely first concert for him.
and we all really enjoyed the show. it was somewhat of a sing-a-long, as they had a projector with the words to all the songs, so it was not only enjoyable, but also worshipful, as their thing is doing new tunes to old hymns. thankfully it was semi-acoustic, so it wasnt so loud as to be painful (I’m sure the cavernous acoustics of the chapel helped this too…ugh, a terrible place for such shows, but oh well). I was impressed with the turnout of all the Covenant kids, as the place was mostly full.
Caleb added lots of members to his fan club, I’m sure. he was in mama’s lap for most of the time, and would smile and clap and wave his arms with some of the songs. he got a little antsy after a while, so I took him back to crawl around the lobby area. it was a little surreal to take our little son to the place where we met and fell in love years ago (Michelle and I were both chapel attendance-takers, so we saw eachother alot, became friends, and miraculously got hitched. it’s a long and lovely story).
we’re so thankful he made it through the whole show, as we got to hear some of our favorites, and more than a few of the songs we’ve done in church. afterward I got to thank the band leader for his work, as their music has added much to our lives and our worship at church. we’re looking forward to the new album, and we might even pick up their Christmas album for this season.
